WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: I have gained more weight in the last 5 years than ever before. My problem is junk food, sweets, french fries - and I'll eat anytime - doesn't have to be just when I'm hungry.
WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: My determination to be a "thin, pretty, mom" for my daughter and i AM determined this time. I have wasted so much of my life being fat - I'm tired of it.

My dh is a chef - who cooks for me. This is part of the reason I'm so overweight....
OTHER EXPERIENCES: Well, can't think of any off the top of my head.
